The Amazon Brigade is an elite fighting unit, often the best of the best or damn near close to it, that is composed entirely of women. This being about fiction, they're usually [[GenericCuteness at least moderately attractive]]. Naturally, they should never be underestimated, for [[ActionGirl they can and will kick your ass]], potentially easily.

In a BishoujoSeries, they are probably the main characters, their existence in this case due to the ImprobablyFemaleCast policy. They may include TheOneGuy for good measure.

*** The Sisters of Battle, a force of {{power armor}}ed [[ChurchMilitant religious fanatics]] [[GirlWithPsychoWeapon wielding]] [[HandCannon bolters]], [[ChainsawGood chainswords]] and [[KillItWithFire flamethrowers]]. They began as an all-female sect tricked into becoming the [[BodyguardBabes bodyguard]] of the [[TheCaligula insane High Lord Vandire]], who seized control of both the [[ObstructiveBureaucrat Administratum]] and the [[ChurchMilitant Ecclesiarchy]] and plunged the Imperium into a bloody civil war. The Daughters eventually discovered his treachery and ended the conflict by [[OffWithHisHead taking Vandire's head]], and though the reforms that followed forbade the church from keeping "men under arms," [[NoManOfWomanBorn this obviously didn't apply to the newly-renamed Sisters of Battle]]. Since then the Adepta Sororitas serve as both the fighting arm of the Ecclesiarchy and the Chamber Militant of the Inquisition's Ordo Hereticus, a force tasked with ensuring that such heresy never happens again. And in a slight subversion of the trope, many Battle-Sisters (particularly the veterans and leaders) show the obvious scars that a lifetime of fighting in the 41st Millennium would entail. Their power armour reflects the theme with decorations evoking breasts, corsets and thigh boots.

*** The background material, such as the Literature/CiaphasCain novels, indicates that the majority of Astra Militarum regiments single-sex units with about 10% of regiments being all-female. Mixed units do exist, but are usually the result of depleted regiments being combined together, as was the case in Cain's own Valhallan 597th as well as the [[Literature/GauntsGhosts Tanith First and Only]]. The gender segregation is mainly for practical reasons, as shown when Cain has to deal with [[BattleCouple increased fraternization between troopers]] and some [[SurprisePregnancy unforeseen complications.]]
